Im curious what everyone's favorite bass synths are! Ive been trying out all sorts of suitable instruments for basses in an attempt to test-drive as many as I can, and Ive found there are tons of good ones out there, each capable of nice basses using the same general patch settings, each with a distinct sound even when they're making the same basic tones.

Mine;

Most used general subtractive: TAL Elek7ro II
Favorite FM: Operator
Favorite complex synth (with all the extra features turned off): Albino

Also Ive used these:

MDA DX10
Prophanity
ASynth
TAL Bassline
CM303
Sylenth
TAL Noisemaker
Charlatan
Synth1



Now its your turn to share yours :D

For a long while Ive been looking for a straight-FM vsti similar to Operator, which rules for basses (& etc), but I don't write in Live usually. Operator is a perfect example of an ideal bass synth; no pesky modulation, no effects to turn off, great waveforms, super-intuitive envelopes, preset routing algorithms...

Well I haven't found anything that comes close to Operator, everything Ive tried is either too labor intensive, has too many extra effects and/or modulations, or not enough oscillator variety. So I gave up.

But I did find this; http://www.xsynth.com/download/Uno_FM.zip" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Sounds pretty good with minimal headache.
